Monday after Mardi Gras is busy in the House of Priscilla costume hire store on Sydney’s Oxford Street.
Customers traipse in to drop off their outfits, many still bleary-eyed after 48 hours of partying. Word is, this year’s Mardi Gras was a good one, even if American drag queen RuPaul was a letdown. But there’s one thing every gay man on Oxford St agrees with: Kylie Minogue stole the show.
Kylie appeared at her third Mardi Gras this year, performing a half hour set at 2am at the post-parade party. The crowd loved her. She loved them. And why wouldn’t she? The 43 year old has pretty much built her entire career around pleasing her gay constituency.

When I was a kid, I loved watching all the old movies.
I can remember precisely the day that I asked my mother for a pair of black and white wing-tip shoes so that I could learn to dance like Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire.
Turns out those shoes, even at that time, were very much out of fashion and hard to find, so I never got them.

Pressure might mount on older drivers to get off the roads as they approach 80, but it’s nothing compared to the pressure to get off the dance floor once you’re approaching 40.
Though the precise cut-off is elusive, the social convention is clear: if you’re dancing your way into middle age, you’re courting tragedy.
Of course no one’s stopping you busting a move – but there’s this question of dignity. Perhaps it’s best to just cede the floor. But while that might be gracious it seems unwise.

You have probably seen this before. But on the weekend after Michael Jackson left us, I thought it was worth another run. You can’t watch this video of inmates at a jail in the Philippines busting their Thriller moves too many times.
